Hi I finished 24 weeks of LEDIPASVIR / SOFOSBUVIR on Nov 3rd 2016 and soon to have my 12 week post treatment blood tests. If I am still virus negative then, I am deemed to be cured.
I have chronic cirrhosis, with enlarged spleen and gall bladder so I still feel quite unwell.
In retrospect I think I am improving slowly and can do a few more physical tasks than prior to treatment.
The first improvement I was aware of, only a few weeks into treatment was the 'BRAIN-FOG" I had been trying to function with for DECADES!! had cleared a lot.
I certainly feel better in spirit and now think of myself having a future [ I am 65 ] rather than just struggling to get through the day!
Becoming more and more unwell over the last 20 to 30 years cost me nearly everything I loved. My partner of 10 years, my business of 35 years, even my ability to read a book, my perfect escape of a lifetime abandoned me.
I try and eat well, I still smoke ciggies, and am looking forward to, hopefully feeling a little better each day.
THANK YOU TO Dr JAMES FREEMAN and the FIX HEP C Organisation for this hope of a future, after decades of slowly but surely running out of steam, it means the world to me.
